21st Century Learning Director's Message

Dr. Brigitte Garth-Young

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to a “PassionIT” 2018-2019 school year! Passion is contagious! Therefore, when passion and technology meet, the dynamics of teaching and learning are ignited!   The Dolton School District 149 School Board understands the importance of cultivating science, technology, engineering, and mathematics skills to encourage higher achievements.  As preparation for a 21st Century future, it is critical that your child learns valuable technological skills that will sustain them throughout their academic and professional careers.

Integrating technology into the curriculum continues to be a high priority for our school district. We believe in excellence, humanization, and pride as it relates to the development of all children to their fullest potential!  The bottom line is, our mission remains to equip our students with skill-sets to use technology effectively in the 21st Century and to “Reignite their Passion” for digital learning. Remember, great thinkers and doers of the world have been fueled by their passion.

The Technology Department has been working diligently to optimize our network and e-learning environments for all staff and students by accomplishing the following:

  • Microsoft 365 Migration.
  • Upgrade to Microsoft Office 2016 Software on all computer systems.
  • Switch Replacement Upgrades to Optimize the Network Infrastructure.
  • J-Touch Board Installations in Every Classroom.
  • Increased computer systems/labs district wide.

As anthologist/author Terri Guillemets once said, “Follow your passion, and success will follow you.”

From the Innovation Team (IT) to all of our stakeholders, we look forward to a marvelous school year!


Dr. Brigitte Garth-Young
